HOPKINTON, N.H. (AP) - A Massachusetts man faces drunken driving and other charges after police say he drove the wrong way on New Hampshire’s Interstate 89 for at least 7 miles (11 kilometers).

State police say they received multiple calls just before 7 p.m. Friday about a Chevrolet Silverado traveling south in the northbound lane of I-89 in Warner. The vehicle was stopped when the driver tried to back up along the Exit 5 off-ramp in Hopkinton.

Sixty-year-old Kirk Meinheit of Lakeville, Massachusetts, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and transporting open alcoholic beverages. A phone listing for him could not be found Saturday. He is due in court June 9.
